a.l.o.e. in the classroom

A.l.o.e. in the classroom has arrived! It's a blog dedicated to my teaching and learning adventures. You can visit a.l.o.e. in the classroom here

How will I manage teaching and posting regularly on two blogs you ask??? I have no idea. Hahaha. My thoughts are, a lot of planning (as usual), less tv (except for Downton Abbey and other Masterpiece classics... and maybe a Housewife of some city every once in a while), definitely little or no travel for a while... We will see. Where there's a will there's a way, One day at a time, Reach for the stars, ... and all that other good stuff :)

I leave you with the last days of summer in Brooklyn. x
A gorgeous summer sky

Many, many trees grow in Brooklyn

This one is my favorite

My first, ever, live, baseball game!

Me and Chrissy, my teaching partner/partner in crime.
You will be seeing more of her this year ;)

Good old fashioned fun

August Catch Up: Copenhagen

August has gone by like a flash! This month started with travel, a wedding, family & friends... The second half has involved much organizing, decluttering and planning for my return to work. If my home is in order, then my mind, body and heart will be ready to embrace the busy season to come.

We stayed at an airbnb with the whole familia. This is a sunrise view from our bedroom window and a lovely rooftop across from us.

Vera (Lim's cousin) & Simon's lovely wedding.

By the canal in Nyhavn.

my lovely sis, bro-in-law and gorgeous niece, Sui...

the best in-laws a girl could have, 

and the lovely couple again

En route to Copenhagen for a wedding, and then a stop over in London to visit with family and friends. This will be the last of my 2014-2105 travel adventures. It's been a remarkable year of art & travel & so many other good things. I am so grateful.

Go to my facebook page to join me on my travels. I'll be back in a couple of weeks!
